Bears will have big pockets this spring

Pending Jay Cutler's status, Chicago could have more than $60 million in cap room. Don't be surprised if Ryan Pace uses a chunk to beef up the offense, John Clayton writes. Big spenders, penny pinchers (Insider)

The Bears are expected to hire Jeremiah Washburn as their new offensive line coach. Washburn spent last year as the Miami Dolphins assistant offensive line coach. He'll replace Dave Magazu, whom head coach John Fox let go after the season. Fox never announced the move.

Alshon Jeffery should get paid nicely

Yes, Jeffery's 2016 season was a bit quiet, but he remains very productive on a per game basis. That should be enough for a hefty deal this offseason, Mike Sando writes. Due for paydays (Insider)

NFL Hall of Famer Richard Dent was lost until his gap wedge showed up in the mail. It was mistakenly put in the wrong golf bag before his trip here but is safe and sound back in his hands now. Yes I had to cut the video short... because the smack talk between Dent and Marcus Allen started getting thick!!

Revisiting the Bears' 2016 offseason

Mike Sando initially gave the Bears a B grade for their offseason moves. And while record-setting rookie RB Jordan Howard was fantastic, it wasn't enough to merit much of a different grade at season's end. Re-grading offseasons (Insider)
